Surely more than once, we have found that the web was full of content that sought to distract us when going to read an article. This is very common on web pages, and it is also very annoying since it does not allow us to concentrate. For this reason, modern web browsers have chosen to include a Reading View that allows us to read these articles much more comfortably, and Firefox was one of the first browsers to bring this function.
The Read View, or Reading View, is a feature that has been available for a long time to all Firefox users and whose main purpose is the indicated one, that is, to hide all kinds of elements that may be a distraction and leave us only what is important, the article itself, to read it.
How To Use Reading View In Firefox
To use the Reading View in Firefox, you do not have to activate any option or change any parameter since it is available to all users of the stable branch and is already activated by default.
If we enter a website, what we will see will be, in the address bar, an icon shaped like a sheet or folio. This icon will allow us to activate this reading view on any website.
We click on this icon or press the F9 key on the keyboard, and that’s it. Firefox will automatically switch the page we were visiting Reading View. We have to go back in the browser or press F9 again to return to normal mode to exit this view.
How To Customize Reading View In Firefox
One of Firefox’s Reading View’s characteristics is that it allows us to easily customize what we see in the browser, something that other browsers, such as Google Chrome, do not allow.
On the left side of the page, we will be able to see a series of tools to customize this view. From these options, we will customize the font (type, size, etc.) of the text we want to see, even change the theme of the Reading View to a dark or sepia theme to make it more readable.
We are also going to find other very interesting tools, such as, for example, a reading tool that will read the text aloud to us (in case it does not appear to read), and even the possibility of saving the article in Pocket to read it later.
